Fitness Facility Uses Cogeneration

August 21, 2004
WALTHAM, Mass. - AmericanDG has agreed to supply low-cost energy to the Westfield Area YMCA in Westfield, N.J. The facility will receive a substantial portion of its electricity and hot water directly from an on-site, 150-kW cogeneration facility operated by AmericanDG. The system uses natural gas-driven cogeneration modules from Tecogen. Jim Lenox, director of facilities at the Y, stated, "Not having to make any capital equipment expenditure was an important factor in our decision."
